In his famous “I Have a Dream” speech Martin Luther King Jr. invoked the words of the Hebrew prophet Amos: “But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.” As we begin the UUA Thirty Days of Love, this service for all ages will be an invitation to live out our faith in the next month as we work toward building a promised land where there is justice and peace.
Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Camille Fauser, Worship Associate
For some of us, this season is difficult. It may be a painful reminder of loved ones who are no longer present to celebrate the holidays, there may be other losses or struggles we are facing, or the long dark nights may be a challenge. “Blue Christmas” will be a meditative service that will provide a space for grief and loss, for reflection and remembering, and for honoring the many different feelings we have this time of year.
Led by Katie Grigg and Eric van Baars, Worship Associate
It’s the darkest time of year, and there seems to be so much despair, fear and darkness in the world. Let’s find out how to let in the light! Light holds great cultural and sacred significance in many of the world’s major religions,especially in the holiday season. We’ll pay homage to traditions and welcome new ways to usher light into the dark corners of our mind, and our world.
Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with nursery care available during both services.
The SCOTUS hearings, the divisiveness so evident in our politics and in our country right now, and the treatment of survivors of sexual violence have made the last few weeks difficult for all of us and especially painful for survivors of sexual violence. We want to offer an opportunity for a safe space to express your thoughts and feelings, to participate in a ritual of healing, and to hear words of hope to sustain us in the times to come. Everyone is welcome to attend. Childcare will be provided — no RSVP needed.
